The Deni Rovers thirds are primed for a top-of-the-table clash with Strathmerton this Saturday after disposing of Jerilderie at the weekend.
The visiting Roos led at every break to beat the higher-placed Demons, all but locking in a top-three finish with two games remaining.
Liam Zeschke, Braden Leech and Jack Hope led the way for the Roos, while Logan Ives, Dylan East and Jayme Glanvill (three goals) were the other big contributors.
The Rovers fourths remain undefeated following a clinical 10.12 (72) to 1.0 (6) win over the Demons.
League leading goalkicker Blair Sartore (two goals), Jason Higgins and smooth mover Nick Hay were the Roos’ best, with crafty forward Reece Hussey bobbing up for three majors.

In the Murray Football League, the Rams thirds came from behind in the last quarter to pinch a 7.2 (44) to 6.8 (44) draw with Echuca United.

Despite losing by 26 points, the Rams fourths performed well against the Eagles and were competitive until the final siren.
The Eagles won by 15 goals when the two met in round three.
Better players were Jordon Amor, Ryan MacDonald, Sam Willoughby, Cooper Wallace and Jack Gardam.
